    [eTailer] Bibliocracy

    Has anyone had any dealings with them? They sent me a Facebook message asking me to send my MS, then another stating they hadn't received it yet.

    Yes, I'm a writer. No, I don't want to write your memoir for you.

    Don't know anything about them, but they sound kind of pushy.
    First, hunting you down on Facebook, then "Chop,chop, where's that MS?"
    I didn't think publishers were so short of work.

    Ebook retailer. Probably harmless, unlikely to be very helpful.

    And that's why I'm so leary. I didn't go to them, they found me on Facebook, asked that I check out their page, and asked me to submit my MS. I was already dealing with other pubs, so I chose not to go with an unknown. Then, I get a FB message stating they "were going through the submissions and didn't see my MS."

    Just thought it might be worth mentioning that I was given a slightly different address on Goodreads by these people:

    http://bibliocracynation.com/

    They asked if I'd like to promote my book and add writer content.

    I know it's not a very well-designed page, but their little box-blurb for "Professional eBook Cover Art" contains four examples of hideous art.
